I couldn't be more happy with the look. Also I am able to get more of my hand on the gun. Now I just have to see how well I can shoot with them.

Default T grips are good

The biggest problem with the S&W 'magna' style grips, is the knuckle of the middle finger gets beat silly if the ammo used generates enough recoil. (Usually not too bad with wadcutters.) The Tyler 'T-grip' removes this problem by moving that knuckle out of the way.

The 'T-grip' also gives a bit more grip area upon which to clutch when shooting. I rather like them, especially for concealment purposes. I also find them aesthetically pleasing, especially for older revolvers.

I've ordered several 'T-grips' from Tyler in the past couple years. Normally, they don't show up in the mail for six weeks or so, but they always get here.

Here are a couple of my revolvers utilizing the devices.

No problems here. Got my T-grip within the 7-10 days outlined on the order form. The only inconvenience is you can't order off the website with a credit card. You have to print the order page, fill it out and send it with a check via snail mail. That aside, I have no complaints.

Thanks Donn. I think I'm going to shoot it for a while without the T-grips and see how it feels before I make a decision but I really appreciate the response.

Montgomery, those are some great looking guns. I love seeing old wheel guns that are actually dressed like old wheel guns. I know what you are saying about the middle knuckle. My model 10 beats up the right hand a little bit. I am sure this 442 will do the same, on the other hand it is a carry gun so I want to keep the dimensions and weight to a minimum, but the T-grips seem like a worthwhile trade off.

I believe the owner passed away, and one of his sons has taken over. Delivery is a little slow now, but you will get what you order.
